The Wavelight Allegretto Wave®
Laser Eye Surgery Technology at
The Eye Care & Surgery Center in New Jersey
Our commitment to the quality, safety and precision of the results we achieve for patients is illustrated by the incorporation of advanced eye surgery technology right in the comfort and convenience of our office. Joel Confino, M.D., Cornea, Cataract & LASIK Surgeon at The Eye Care and Surgery Center in New Jersey, provides our patients Laser Eye Surgery using PerfectPulse Technology™ with the Wavelight Allegretto Wave ® Laser System for the correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. PerfectPulse Technology™ ensures safe and precise laser energy delivery at high speed for vision correction procedures such as LASIK and Advanced Surface Ablation including PRK and Epi-LASIK. Using the Allegretto Wave®, Dr. Confino is able to apply tiny laser pulses to the Cornea to sculpt its surface with the utmost accuracy. The high-speed eye-tracker follows the eye’s fastest movements, checking the eye’s positions 400 times per second while ensuring an accurate placement of each laser pulse on the cornea. This makes the Allegretto Wave® one of the safest, most effective eye surgery lasers currently available today.
Smart Energy Control- You can have peace of mind that the amount of energy in the laser has been calibrated to exactly the right level. After the beam has been created, it passes through three checkpoints on its way to your eye. At each of these points, the energy level is checked and adjusted if necessary, ensuring that the beam is perfectly attuned at its destination.
Eye Tracking Technology-Due to the remarkable speed of both the eye and the Allegretto Wave® procedure, the laser beam will be constantly and minutely adjusted to the position of your eye at any given time. Every four to six milliseconds, the eye’s location is measured and the internal mirrors of the laser are automatically aligned. Just before the pulse is released, a second check is made to confirm that your eye has not moved. If, at any time, your eye moves too quickly to be measured or moves out of range, the laser will stop and wait for your eye to move back into position.
Speed- Currently, the Allegretto Wave® is among the fastest vision correction lasers for LASIK available in the United States. For most patients, the actual laser application only takes 4-30 seconds, depending on the amount of correction necessary. Of course, spending less time under the laser means an easier and less stressful experience during your Laser Eye Surgery procedure.
Wavefront OptimizedTreatments-The Allegretto Wave® Technology allows Dr. Confino to deliver a treatment zone that can both correct and optimize your vision through a precise optical formula.
